The ‘Tribal Chief‘ got a whopping five nominations, including the Superstar of the Year. In the ‘match of the year category,’ he was nominated TWICE! However, he fell short somewhere.

After the award show was over, one fan wondered why Reigns did not win anything. To this, Reigns had a fitting reply.

In the reply, the ‘Head of the Table’ not only denounced the winners but the award itself as he called it “participation awards.” He could also be taking a dig at Drew McIntyre who got both the male Superstar of the year and the all-over Superstar of the year awards.

Roman Reigns has had a great year so far

Towards the beginning of 2020, Reigns suffered a setback. He had to withdraw against Goldberg at WrestleMania 36 due to health worries in the pandemic. However, he came back to WWE at SummerSlam much stronger.

After years of fans wanting Reigns as a heel, he finally became the evil champion. He aligned himself with Paul Heyman, wrecking everything and everyone (including his family) on his way to achieve complete dominance over the SmackDown roster.

He faced his cousin Jey Uso multiple times before initiating him in the Samoan Tribe. Reigns even faced McIntyre and defeated him at Survivor Series. Currently, he is feuding with Kevin Owens over the title.
